Hardcover, 6 1/2 x 9 1/2, photos, illus., Index, Glossary, Review Questions For Each Chapter, 288 pages

Introduction to Executive Protection goes way beyond even a lot of the so-called advanced manuals on the market exposing the secrets of executive protection by an author who has extensive experience in the field including protection to US Presidents Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Jimmie Carter and Ronald Reagan. This work provides beginners and well as seasoned pros in the occupation of executive protection with the tools they need to know and appreciate the profession; to enable them to realize what is expected when they are placed in positions of confidence and trust; and to understand the implications of being responsible for the safety and lives of others.


•Addresses both protector and protectee by providing information on requirements, conduct, and qualifications

•Discusses both residential and estate security

•Uses actual stories to illustrate the "hard way" of learning practical and common sense points through trial and error

•Offers "refresher" information to veteran executive protection specialists who wish to expand their horizons or to rekindle their dedication to the principles of the job

•Explains protectee protocol

•Provides diagrams and pictures showing ways to protect individuals
•Includes a glossary of executive protection terms

This guide emphasizes the basic elements of executive protection which are often neglected or overlooked in practical application, even by professional schools of executive protection instruction which sometimes mistakenly assume all enrollees are practiced journeymen. In addition to practical and technical considerations of the profession, "executive protection" means working with people on a personal level. The author draws on his extensive and varied experience in the field to share events that inform and enlighten students of executive protection and teach them how to best avoid endangering those they protect.
